Wavertree partnership confirmed

Mersey Rose confirms partnership with Wavertree CC

Mersey Rose Recreationals Cricket Club is delighted to confirm a partnership between our club and Wavertree Cricket Club.

This is a partnership between two clubs committed to inclusion and diversity. Our own club was founded to provide opportunities for LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, over 60s, and people new to the game to enjoy friendly cricket. Wavertree CC already has a Visually Impaired team playing at Sandown Lane and is committed to widening access to the game. The partnership will involve Mersey Rose playing a number of games at Wavertree, where they will also train during the 2024 season. There will be a game between Mersey Rose and the Visually Impaired team, and Wavertree CC players who would like to play additional friendly matches will be eligible to play in any Mersey Rose games. There will also be opportunities for Mersey Rose players to potentially take their cricket further and play league cricket.

Mersey Rose Recreationals secretary Anna Page said: “We hope this is the start of a successful partnership between our two clubs. Wavertree have been very supportive of our vision for inclusive cricket and we are proud to be associated with them. We believe the partnership will better equip us to meet the needs of our players and the wider community.”

Wavertree CC chairman Phill O’Brien said: “Welcoming the Mersey Rose Recreationals into the Wavertree CC community didn't take a minute’s thought. It's clear to me the cricket community as a whole need to embrace the initiative of groups trying to open access to our game. The partnership will also strengthening our own pathway into the game.”
